On the recruiting trail, I have word from Greenfield boys basketball head coach that 6-foot-6 senior Jeremy Jeffers has given a verbal commitment to Drake University.
Jeffers will make it official during the early signing period from Nov. 11 to Nov. 18. He had been recruited by a number of schools, including South Carolina and Harvard.
Brian Richardson, the Knights' other highly regarded 6-6 senior, is said to be narrowing his field down with South Carolina and Alabama among his frontrunners. Two more seniors, Darian Cahill and Jarred Hinton, also have decisions to make but both are considering Barton College.
